There's "Whoa! Look at all the skis I can try ... wonder how I can fit them all into one week?" type of people (like myself), and then there's "They're just skis, what's the big deal?" type of people (like my GF). Of course there are also "This topsheet design is really pretty" people, and "I've had these skis since 1985 and they're still perfectly fine" type of people.
If the budget permits I would be on the 'demo as many skis as possible' bandwagon. Finndog and I are on the same wavelength there. That can get expensive as you could end up buying a pair 'cause you simply can't live without them. Then again, when I travel I tend to take my own skis and still demo as many as I can, just 'cause that's my thing. My GF takes her own skis and then reluctantly tries others when I tell her the reason she's not really enjoying the conditions is that her 70mm skis aren't quite ideal. Earlier this year in Whistler she demoed a few skis, rented a pair of Bushwackers for the day, adored them, and then flatly refused to ski her own skis for the rest of the trip.
See if you can borrow a wheelie ski bag, or buy one second hand for cheap (they can get knocked around in transit).
Whatever you do you'll be sliding around on snow and having fun. Can't really go wrong with that.
